I would hope Steve Smith gets in as a 1st ballot HOFer.........  

chris carter was voted to the hall in his sixth year of eligibility, how do you figure steve smith will make it in his first. steve smith will make it to the hall when he buys a ticket like the rest of us.

Every Panther fan in the world WANTS Smitty in. But realistically he's not even close. He had the unfortunate luck of playing with a bad quarterback, on a run first team for 10 years, during the time of offensive explosion. Current players numbers are going to poo all over smitty's. Add that to the fact that WR is the hardest position to make it in since there has been a complete log jam in HOF Receivers over the past few years. He's my favorite player of all time and I would gladly make the trip to Canton if he ever got in, but you need to let the fantasy go.

 

Hes:

 

-27th all time in receptions (plus there are 5 players real close to him that will pass him in a few years, not even counting the Megatron's and AJ Green types)

-23rd in receiving yards (3 about to pass him)

-59th in receiving TDs

-0 Super Bowls

-0 MVPs

-only had over 8 TDs ONCE in his career

 

right now, Smitty and Chad Johnson have almost identical all time stats

Smitty: 772 catches. 11452 yards. 63 Rec TDs

Chad: 766 catches. 11059 yards. 67 RecTDs

 

Great player? Without question. Hall of Famer? Not a chance

very good post, 27th in receptions, 23rd in yards, 59th in TDs, he aint got a prayer, and you didnt even mention his assaults on teammates.

peppers and smith will both be HoFers

 

lets say smith gets 2500 more yards for the remainder of his career. that puts him at 14,000, a number that i think is definitely high enough for HoF induction.

 

and it's not all about the numbers, vets and retired players alike ALL praise smith and think of him as an elite talent still at the age of 34. his stature might even get him a few points from some voters. he is a unique talent with his size, strength, explosiveness, and mouth and that uniqueness is considered in these type of things i think.

dont hold your breath on either one. peppers makes it before smith, and he's a longshot. if peppers makes it, so does dwight freeney.

 

peppers- 2nd overall pick 2002 draft- 111.5 sacks- 37 forced fumbles

 

freeney- 11th overall pick 2002 draft- 107.5 sacks- 44 forced fumbles

 

peppers ranks 18th all time in sacks, freeney ranks 21st

 

freeney's 44 forced fumbles leads the nfl since 2002, and he also has a ring.

 

to my knowledge neither peppers or freeney ever ended the career of a teammate with an assault.

I honestly don't even care about the Hall of Fame. Sure it would be nice but some of our guys like Minter, Rucker, and Delhomme will never get in yet they're still legendary to me.

Peppers:

8 interceptions (2nd most by d lineman ever)

Most interception return yards by a defensive lineman ever.

Longest interception return by a d lineman

Most interception/fumble return yards in a single season by a d lineman

Those 37 forced fumbles - 10th most in history

13 blocked kicks (2nd most in history)

59 passes defensed (3rd most by a d lineman)

Freeney:

epic butthurt rant about officiating

0 interceptions

moral of the story, peppers will be in HOF. 1 trick pony Sweeney might.... possibly.... on a slow year

e: great autocorrect... don't even wanna change it
